Paradise Pad FAQs

Stand Up Paddle Board FAQs

How do I inflate my ParadisePad SUP Board?

  • Fasten air hose to the pressure gauge on the pump. Locate the air valve on the tail of the board. Open the valve cover. Make sure the inner valve is in the “UP” position. Connect the air hose to the air valve. Inflate to 10-15 psi. We recommend testing out your board at varying psi to find the right fit for you. Disconnect air hose from the valve. The inner valve will prevent air from escaping when in the “UP” position. Close the valve cover.

  • Generally the pressure gauge will start to register a pressure reading at 7 PSI’s. The board should take about 160-180 pumps to achieve15 PSI

How long should I leave my iSUP inflated?

If your inflatable paddle board is stored inside, out of direct sunlight and away from extreme temperature changes, the board can be left inflated indefinitely. To preserve the life of your isup it is recommended deflating periodically.

How should I store my board?

Deflate your isup by pressing the the valve pin to the down position. It will then lock in this position. Air will naturally leave the board when the valve is in deflate.

Roll the board up from the nose to the tail. Once all the air has been removed place the valve in the closed or “ inflate”position, sticking up. This will prevent air from being sucked back into the board. Remove center fin.

Secure your board with the belt that comes in the isup package.

The deckpad should be on the inside and the fins on the outside. This preserves life of the deckpad. Boards should be stored dry.

What type of paddle comes with this iSUP and does it float?

The iSUP comes with an upgraded fiberglass 3-piece adjustable paddle with nylon composite blade. It breaks down conveniently to fit into the included back pack and will float assembled.

Are the fins included?

Water Pad FAQs

I see Paradise Pad offers 5 Models (XS, S, M, L, XL). Why so many optionas and which is the best for my family?

The standard water pad in the industry is a 2ply water pad around 1.25” – 1.5” thick, 6’ wide by 12’ or 18’ long. Our thinnest pads (XS and M) are 1.4” thick and are perfect for the family with small kids. Great for the adults too, but not as easy for adults to “walk on water”. If only 4-5 users, the 12’ (XS) is plenty big & will support roughly 900lbs; If more than 4-5 users go with the 18’ (Medium) which will support roughly 1,500lbs of distributed weight (laying/sitting).

We have other style options as customers have been asking for more. The next thickest pad is our Large model (6’ x 18’ x 1.5”). This is our original 3ply pad, 3ply means 3 layers of foam, in relation the 2ply is 2 layers of foam. With an additional layer of foam, results in enhanced buoyancy/floating power! This model will support roughly 1,800lbs.

If the Large model is appealing but you’re still uncertain if it will be enough flotation then check out our XL. It’s our best pad we offer & have ever made. 6’ x 18’ x 2.1” and will support roughly 3,000lbs.

Our fifth model is our Small. Unique in its own class because it is 5’ x 15’ x 2.1” and will support roughly 2,000lbs. By making a foam pad a foot narrower we have made a pad that is easier for transportation & storage – it even fits in the backseat of some cars, whereas 6’ pads cannot fit in a vehicle unless mid sized SUV, van, or truck. This model is recommended for 4-5 users & can be seen on many rental boats across the country.

Was Paradise Pad the first company to make floating water pads?

No, we were not the first company making floating water pads. Our world class engineers had time to study the flaws of others like no tear resistant membrane, low density foam, plastic tethers, no bungee cords, no customer service or warranty, & some made in China. We didn’t want to make the same mistakes like others. Some other firsts have been the Hindenberg, Titanic, Blackberry, etc. It is just an example being a first isn’t always the best.

Are Paradise Pad's water pads made in the USA?

YES, PROUDLY. The ParadisePad family business is based in the Midwest and is very proud to say our manufacturing process and foam are all made in the USA. We could save a lot of money buying a second rate water pad made in China but we felt we couldn’t mislead our American friends like some other foam water pad companies. American foam > imported foam.

Where do I put my Paradise Pad when my boat is full of people?

Most people feel their ParadisePad is the best lay toy to bring boating but all foam floating pads take up a lot of space. When boating, most will lay their ParadisePad on the swim platform or on the front of a pontoon boat.

How do I anchor my Paradise Pad?

Paradise Pads come with a superior stainless steel tether on each side of the pad and a 10’-15’ bungee cord with carabiner clips at each end. Attach one end of the bungee to the pad and the other end to the boat, jetski, dock, anchor etc.!

What can I do to extend the life of my Paradise PAd?

Paradise Pad uses the best available American made foam with UV screeners but with any foam or plastic item, the sun UV rays can be harmful. We suggest to try to get the water pad out of the sun when not being used. We do not recommend leaving the pad outside in direct sunlight on land or water for extended periods of time, especially when not in use. Where can I purchase ParadisePad Watersports Products? What is the warranty on ParadisePad foam water pads?

What is the warranty on my foam Paradise Pad?

We offer the easiest and best 1 year warranty in the industry. Many other brands make you get a return goods form and then you need to pay around $150 to ship the item back to see if they will warranty. We feel this is unfair. Most other brands limit the warranty and do not cover tears from jumping on the pad. We ask that you email us your proof of purchase, picture of the problem and we take it from there…
